Part 2: Rescued for purpose and Hope Found with Jim Ravella

In this episode, Jonathan continues his interview with Jim Ravella. Jim shares how him being rescued led to him being one God could use to rescue others. In his loss, God gave him more purpose. He shares how the cross is our greatest gift but that gift comes with a call from God that can demand a lot.     He shares how his greatest trial in life and the loss of his wife Andrea Fuller Ravella in 2007 would provide a gift that would keep giving to him despite the pain. Jim married Ginger in 2008 and they have seven children, Nicholas (35), Anthony (28), Boston (23), Greyson (21), Isabella (18), Aspen (15) and Annalise (15).     Jim currently serves as a Vice President for the Gary Sinise Foundation, a non-profit charity whose mission is support our Nation’s Defenders, Veterans, First Responders, their families and those in need.  He is a retired United States Air Force Colonel and fighter pilot with 26 years of service and numerous awards including multiple Top Gun Awards and the Meritorious Service Medal.   Jim Ravella’s Book, Hope Found: https://www.amazon.com/Hope-Found-When-hoped-would/dp/1512777870/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=ginger+ravella&qid=1619799302&sr=8-1
